Traverse City Roofing Stresses Importance of Emergency Roof Repair

Traverse City Roofing, a company based in Traverse City, MI, wants to emphasize the importance of calling for emergency roof repair even during the winter season for residents of Grand Traverse County and surrounding areas. Winters in Northern Michigan are snowy, freezing, and windy, which means it is not advisable for people without the experience and tools to attempt and do the repairs themselves. Surfaces are slippery and the presence of ice dams can result in dangerous conditions on the roof. Nevertheless, it is important to address any roof damage incurred during the winter season. Thus, it would be advisable to hire a professional and experienced roofing contractor.

James Thomas, a representative for Traverse City Roofing, says, “Strong winds can damage the roof, causing the substrate to be exposed to the elements, especially when the shingles get torn off. Roof repair is typically the highest priority when it comes to home repair projects. Emergency roof repair is exactly what it sounds like: it’s when you get a licensed contractor to patch up your roof and fix the damage caused by the elements. But as we’ve established, not every project is urgent enough to be considered an actual “emergency”. If the damage has exposed the interior of your home, then that qualifies as an actual roofing emergency. So if something like a tree or a large branch has smashed a hole into your roof, then you need help right away. There’s nothing to stop the weather and outdoor creatures from entering your home, so that qualifies as an emergency.”

A few missing shingles may not be regarded as an emergency. However, it is still advisable to have the roof inspected by a professional in order to ensure that more serious problems will not develop. It is important to keep in mind, however, that the roofing professionals may not immediately be able to start the roof repairs during certain conditions. They will need to wait until the conditions are safe enough for them to work on the roof. With regards to leaks, all types of leaks will need to be attended to. However, some leaks won’t necessarily need a same-day response. Also, It should also be noted that the sealing process for roofs cannot be done when the temperature is below freezing. Thus, roofers may need to wait a bit until the weather warms up a bit before proceeding with the sealing process.

Residents of Detroit and neighboring areas can call on the services of Traverse City Roofing professionals if they feel their roof requires emergency repair. Their team of experienced roofers will evaluate the situation and determine the best possible solution. Next, they will provide an estimate of the pricing, which would be transparent and will not have any hidden fees. And it is important to note that they can provide emergency roof repair for both residential and commercial buildings.

Meanwhile, the professional roofers from Traverse City Roofing can also provide roofing services for commercial buildings, which typically have flat roofs as opposed to the pitched or steep slope roofs of residential buildings. Flat roofs are typically more cost-effective because they need less roofing material and are also faster and easier to install. Nevertheless, commercial flat roof repair, installation, and maintenance need to be handled by professionals.
